NASA Awards Contract to Revitalize Power Distribution Systems
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA has selected MIL-CON Electric Company of Jacksonville, Fla., to revitalize the high and medium electric voltage power distribution systems throughout NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The value of the contract is approximately $6.1 million.

MIL-CON's scope of work includes modifications to the systems providing high voltage utility power service at Kennedy. This work will span the space center from the Industrial Area to Launch Complex 39 and will significantly improve electrical systems reliability. In addition, the contract will include substation improvement work, installation of new medium and low voltage switch equipment, and replacement of power cables approaching the end of their service life. A major electrical rehabilitation to Complex 39 launch pads and the Vehicle Assembly Building will be undertaken to support future launch programs.

The project is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2010 and will take two years to complete.
